Ella now estimated to be just over a year. She was the mom to all the N pups. She was found days before giving birth and brought into our rescue. She gave birth to 9 sweet pups and she was by far one of our best momma dogs ever. She was protective and never left [...]



Sasha came to us skin and bones. Her mouth was full of sores and cuts. Her back leg she favoured as it was weak and had a scare. She longed for someone to care, to notice, to take and love her. Lucky there was someone who contacted us. We knew she wouldn’t last long without [...]
